Our Four Somme Team

With more than 10,000 wine grape varieties in existence, choosing a wine that you’re guaranteed to enjoy can be a difficult task.

That’s where we come in.

We’re on a mission to help everyday wine drinkers make better decisions when it comes to selecting wine.

We pair customer insights gathered through our Four Somme sample packs with smart algorithms to identify trends that will revolutionise the way wine is sold and purchased.

With winemakers and retailers now able to tap into this powerful data, we believe that winemaking will soon become better aligned with consumer preferences – making it easier to choose that perfect bottle, every time.

Discover what you like the most – and help shape the future of the wine industry. Meet our Four Somme Team below…
